Attached Message
I am pleased to get across to you for a very confidential and profitable business proposal.I got 
your contact while searching for a reliable person who would assist me to execute this life time 
business opportunity in my department.I deemed it fit to contact you to seek your assistance in 
this profitable project which requires trust and confidentiality.

An American of Iraqi Foreign Oil Consultant/Contractor with the Royal 
Dutch/Shell,Anglo-Persian,CFP,Exxon,Mobil,Atlantic Richfield,Gulf Oil Corporation,made a numbered 
time (fixed) deposit for fifteen years, Valued at 10,000,000.00 USD (Ten Million US Currency) in my 
branch upon maturity. Our department sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got 
no reply.

After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers,the Gulf 
Oil Corporation that Mr.William Barnes  died with his wife Mrs.Tamsin Barnes in a plane crash on 
October 31,1999,(an Egyptian Boeing 767 Flight 990) with other passengers on board as you can 
confirm it yourself via the Website below for verification (BBC WORLD NEWS:

The most astonishing of my discovery was that, all records bear no next of kin, meaning no member 
of Late Mr.William Barnes family knows about the deposit,therefore no member of his family will 
ever come forward to claim the fund. So to avoid the bank transferring the stipulate fund in a 
dormant as unclaimed funds to the emirates treasury account,the above stated funds must be claimed 
immediately by somebody who would stand as the Next of Kin of the late Mr.William Barnes as the 
beneficiary,because according to the financial laws of United Arab Emirates,at the expiration of 
Fifteen years {15},this money will be reverted to the ownership of the Government treasury account 
if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Furthermore,this revelation is only known to me because I was his personal account officer in our 
bank before I was transferred to this present office.Hence I seek your collaboration to act as next 
of kin/beneficiary to late Mr.William Barnes to claim the funds and move them into useful 
investments,we shall split the cash between our selves upon the confirmation of the money into your 
deem fit bank account.I am ready to offer you 25% of the total fund.

Please note that by the virtue of my position in the bank,I have worked out the perfect modality on 
how to claim the fund and I shall provide the relevant information and documents for the successful 
claim and transfer of the funds in the account that would be provided by you,I can not stand at the 
forefront of this transaction because I work with the bank,that is why I have come to you for 
assistance,be rest assured that this project involves 100% risk free. Upon the receipt of your 
acceptance mail,I shall then provide you with more details that will help you understand this 
transaction.I will like you to provide immediately your private phone number and fax numbers for 
easy communication.

Awaiting your urgent reply via my confidential email address:
